“Feed it well, there’s been plenty of water coming down so it won’t be dry, but it might just be starved.”
Many acers are slow growing and compact, making them excellent trees for small gardens.
Grow them as a free-standing specimen, as a part of a border, or in a large container.
The most important thing to remember when growing acers is to give them a sheltered position.
They need to be protected not only from northern and easterly winds but from frosts, too – cover them with fleece in winter, if necessary.
